A Question of Racism - What's behind the vitriol in the opposition to Obama?
Race and Racism in the Time of Obama - In 2008, America elected a black president. It seemed so heady - such a landmark moment in racial justice. It has not turned out so well. From the beginning of his service, Barack Obama has been successfully marginalized as "the other," with a substantial part of the electorate (and the United States Congress) questioning not only his politics or policies, but also his very legitimacy.
- Gas was supposed to cost $6.60 per gallon.
- Unemployment was supposed to be stuck at over 8 percent
- The stock market was supposed to crash
- The entire U.S. economy was supposed to collapse
Thing that President Obama didn't do that his racist enemies unequivocally declared he would.
Didn't pay Iran ransom money - "It was a settlement dating back to a disputed 1979 U.S.-Iranian arrangement that was interrupted by the Iranian revolution. In other words, the $400 million was Iran's money that had been sequestered for more than 35 years by the United States." With the U.S. earning a large sum off the interest.
Didn't bring on Armageddon --- more than 16 TIMES!
Didn't take our guns - (hundreds of times!) Quite the opposite. "The only changes to gun laws under President Obama expanded NOT restricted gun rights. In fact, when compared to Republican icon Ronald Reagan who supported such things as banning open carry, banning machine guns, banning assault weapons, and mandatory background checks, Obama looks like the second coming of Charlton Heston."
Didn't refuse to leave office and become dictator --- dozens of times.
And a year later, Didn't replace the Constitution with Sharia law
Didn't attack Iran using tactical weapons --- in spite of conservative warmongers demanding he do just that.
Didn't remove Amereican flag from Air Force One. --- It was his logo on his campaign jet in 2008 which is what all Presidential candidates do when campaigning.
Didn't remove American flag in White House and replaced it with Muslim curtain. --- "The gold curtains have hung in the East Room of the White House since at least the 1960's."
Didn't invade Texas during Jade Helm 15 --- except with FEMA who supplied clean water, food and lots of cash after weather disasters.
What Obama did do: Had the gall to seek the job reserved for white men only --- while being black. (Plus he has a funny name.)
